    PCI-DSS compliance

    We provide 100% PCI-DSS compliant hosting

    If your e-commerce website handles credit card transactions online, then it’s likely you’ll need to be PCI-DSS compliant and process payments in a safe, secure and compliant hosting environment. At Krystal, all business hosting plans are deployed onto a PCI scan compliant server ensuring you’ll be able to take payments on your website in the correct manner and as outlined by the PCI Security Standards Council.

    PCI compliance levels explained

    There are 4 levels of PCI compliance depending on how you handle the credit card process online and the number of transactions are completed each year.

    • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 1

      Merchants that process over 6,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions annually. This also includes any merchant that has experienced a previous data breach where sensitive information has been compromised on the server.

    • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 2

      Merchants that process between 1,000,000 and 6,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions per year.

    • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 3

      Merchants that process between 20,000 and 1,000,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions per year.

    • PCI-DSS compliance: Level 4

      Merchants that process less than 20,000 Visa or MasterCard e-commerce transactions annually, plus all other merchants that process up to 1 million Visa or MasterCard transactions per year.

    What is PCI compliance?

    PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is an information security standard for organisations that handle credit cards from the major card providers such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and others.
